The Delphi Technique: A Research Strategy for Career and Technical Education
Stitt-Gohdes, Wanda L.; Crews, Tena B.
Journal of Career and Technical Education, v20 n2 p55-67 Spr 2004
Career and technical education research often centers around quantitative research designs. The Delphi Technique provides a structured communication process designed to produce a detailed examination of a topic and/or problem and discussion from the participating group. The contributions of individuals via this tool produce a group perspective not otherwise attainable. This paper provides the foundations of the Delphi Technique, discusses its strengths and weaknesses, explains the use and stages followed, discusses panel selection, and explains how consensus among participants is reached. Examples of how the Delphi Technique has been used in career and technical education are also included.
